A Human Security Perspective on Migration in Europe
How can a migration management system with a human security approach lead to a solution that addresses both European citizen’s and migrants’ needs?
Many European citizens and many migrants into Europe live under fear and anxiety. The existing political structures further divide and perpetuate both these experiences.
Migrants seeking political, social, and economic protection in the EU has been met with an approach by the EU to develop a migration management system using a human rights perspective within a security logic.
Professor Ali Bilgiç, Professor Des Gasper and Dr Cathy Wilcock present ideas using a human security analysis in combination with a human rights perspective in relation to migration.
